What makes it astounding is that he had just been visited by the priest and the love and forgiveness with a strong hand must have been beyond belief!Here it is, the letter from David after Nathan the prophet had spoken to him concerning his adultery with Bathsheba.

“Be gracious to me, O God, according to your lovingkindness; According to the greatness of your compassion blot out my transgressions.

Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you and you only have I sinned and done evil in your sight, So that you  are justified when You speak and blameless when You judge.

I was brought forth in iniquity and in sin my mother concieved me. You desire thruth in the innermost being and in the hidden part you will make me know wisdom.  Purify me and I shall be clean, wash me and I will be whiter than snow, make me to hear joy and gladness, Let the bones that are broken rejoice and hide your face from my sins and blot out my iniquities.

Create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do no cast me away from Your presence and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit then I will teach transgressors Your ways and sinners will be converted to You!”
